  • Electric Chair 9 Jun 1999
    1,059 words
    Is the electric chair a cruel and inhumane way to punish criminals for the crimes they have committed in the past This is the huge controversy that has been stirring up in Florida news lately. The electric chair has proven to have malfunctions and is not killing people instantly. The criminals have been feeling pain from the evidence that has been found. Recently the electric chair has been reconstructed. The original electric chair was made out of oak wood in 1923. The new electric chair is als...
  • Current Conduction Arm And The Electrode Holders
    409 words
    The modern steel plant receives low current, high voltage power from the generators of the electrical utility company. The purpose of the steel plant primary transformer is to step-down this voltage. The transformer thus provides high current, low voltage power for the EAF furnace. Large furnaces with transformers rated at 100 MVA or higher is not uncommon. There are usually two stages to this process. The transformer first steps-down the voltage from high to medium levels. There are different s...
  • Thomas Edison And George Westinghouse
    993 words
    When Moran writes that he aims "to demonstrate how our most cherished social values can be manipulated to serve pecuniary interests: the way in which public policy is affected by behind-the-scenes maneuvering of powerful and often ruthless business interests", I think he is talking solely about the death penalty (xv ). There are various aspects within the death penalty that make it a much more dynamic issue. Throughout his book, Moran writes about the inhumanity of the death penalty, including t...
  • Functional Electrical Stimulation
    673 words
    Medicine and electronics are rapidly becoming a common partnership. Electronics and medicine has been around for over a hundred years. This application can be seen in early X-ray machines, as well as early doctors and healers who felt that electricity possessed something special that assisted the healing process of many illnesses and injuries. But it has not been the last forty to fifty years that the development and refinement of electricity as medical agent has occurred. Today the medical fiel...
  • Standing Earth Leakage Current On The Installation
    2,080 words
    Since early 2003 the Electrical Inspectorate has been working to raise public awareness of Residual Current Devices (RCDs), with the aim of eventually enforcing the use of these devices as recommended by the standard adopted by the St. Lucia Bureau of Standards for wiring of buildings SONS / BS 7671: 2001- Requirements for Electrical Installations! V IEE Wiring Regulations! V Sixteenth Edition. These Regulations though only recently adopted by the Bureau of Standards is the Regulations referred ...
  • Alternate Current Machines
    620 words
    Tesla on the D.C. motor In a paper presented before the American Institute of Electrical Engineers in 1888, Tesla criticized the illogical construction of the D.C. motor. "In our dynamo machines, it is well known, we generate alternate currents which we direct by means of a commutator, a complicated device and, it may be justly said, the source of most of the troubles experienced in the operation of the machines. Now, the currents, so directed cannot be utilized in the motor, but must - again by...
  • Fields Of Electricity And Magnetism
    579 words
    Michael Faraday is a British physicist and chemist, best known for his discoveries of electromagnetic induction and of the laws of electrolysis. He was born in 1791 to a poor family in London, Michael Faraday was extremely curious, questioning everything. He felt an urgent need to know more. At age 13, he became an errand boy for a bookbinding shop in London. He read every book that he bound, and decided that one day he would write a book of his own. He became interested in the concept of energy...
  • Instance The Secondary Voltage Of A Transformer
    1,392 words
    Introduction The Reason and Use of Transformers A transformer is a device that raises or lowers voltage and is used mostly with alternating current, or ac. A transformer has no moving parts, is simple, rugged, durable, and can be up to ninety-nine percent efficient. Cities use a large amount of power, and power is based on the amount of current in electricity. A transformer works by changing the amount of voltage and current of electricity. When voltage is increased current in electricity is dec...
  • Design Of An Insulator
    362 words
    Insulation Theory Insulators are the devices used on electricity supply networks to support, separate, or contain conductors at high voltage. All insulators have dual functions, mechanical and electrical, which commonly present conflicting demands to the designer. The most serious complicating factor is the impossibility, in practice, of providing an ideally non conductive element. This is so because all insulators have external surfaces, which will become contaminated to some extent in service....
  • Magnetic Field The Electric Charges
    789 words
    Electricity Monica Smith Summary of Demonstration: This experiment will show us how energy current moves through circuits. I will be pointing out the different parts and telling what they do, and how they contribute so that the energy flows through them all. Finally, I will close the cardboard piece so that everyone will be able to actually see the result of the electric current. Scientific Explanation: To explain my demonstration and how it works, we will have to start all the way back at elect...
